For part one of the the two DRUMLESSON albums, that CHRISTIAN PROMMER will produce this year, he recorded 10 of his favourite dance classics as jazz interpretations. Taking his favourite dance tracks of the last two decades and transforming the energy and magic of the originals into a performance of a jazz quartet (piano, drums, percussion and bass) was quite an interesting journey for the composer/producer.

All started with the idea to record an acoustic version of the DERRICK MAY classic Strings of Life to warm up for the production of his first solo album. He recorded the basic idea some time ago in his new studio on the country side near Munich. Upright piano played by ROBERTO DI GIOIA and drums by WOLFGANG HAFFNER. Thought of as a "one-off" track for the fun of it, it sat on the shelf for a long time until ALEX BARCK of the JAZZANOVA crew, came by and heard the track. Alex and the rest of the crew got so excited about this tune, playing it in their DJ sets all over the world, that they soon decided to release a 12" with this track. Released in May 2007 it was a fast spreading phenomenon. DJs and music fans from all sides of the spectrum got into this track. DERRICK MAY also gave CHRISTIAN PROMMER his thumbs up. Nice. The idea of rerecording dance classics did not leave CHRISTIAN PROMMER’s head while he was preparing his debut album for Sonar Kollektiv. Feeling at home in the world between Jazz and Detroit Techno he decided to do an album project that had two parts. Vol. 1 reinterprets the dance classics in a jazzy fashion. Arranging and producing the record in an old school way. Using a band to perform. Vol. 2 is the album that takes the lesson to the next level and delivers original compositions in a wider range featuring collaborations with vocalists, the DRUMLESSON players, string ensembles, more musicians and CHRISTIAN PROMMER playing many instruments himself. On Vol. 1 the track listing features tunes that CHRISTIAN PROMMER played in his dj-set at one point in his more than ten year long DJ journey.
